We are fascinated by the lives of others – the rich, famous and
infamous - but how do we write the personal history of another? This day school will examine methods of biographical writing and some of the challenges and pitfalls faced by the writer when trying to recreate the past. We will explore the processes of why we choose to write about someone and what makes them special or interesting, how to construct their life through chronological or thematic writing, and ways of faithfully placing people within the social, historical and political contexts of their times whilst understanding their personal motivations. We will be using primary sources such as diaries, letters and testimonies and there will be time to work on any personal projects that participants wish to bring with them.
This session will involve practical writing exercises.
